Every day at mealtime, millions of American families share a simple ritual: they say grace. Some recite a traditional blessing, some sing a song of thanks, and some just engage in a moment of silence as they reflect on their gratitude for their food, their families, and their many gifts.
Seasons of Thanks is a nondenominational collection of blessings and stories organized by month, so the reader can easily find the right words for a holiday meal or other special occasion. The Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Bob Dylan, Langston Hughes, and Gloria Steinem are among those whose inspirational words can be found here. Both time-honored and contemporary, encompassing the distinctive traditions of nearly every religion and ethnicity in America, this handsomely packaged collection will be a rich source of spiritual nourishment-and a thoughtful gift to give a family member or friend.
